Class of 2022 Public Service Recruiting Day – Application Deadline Extended to October 17th!
Public Service Recruiting Day is a collaboration between the Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship, the Harvard Global Health Institute, the Institute of Politics, and the Office of Career Services to create pathways to post-graduate public service opportunities. This year, Public Service Recruiting Day will be held on October 29, 2021.
Through Public Service Recruiting Day, Harvard College seniors will have the opportunity to interview with outstanding public service organizations. Participating organizations will conduct a variety of interview types, ranging from informational interviews about the organization to first round interviews for specific roles. Click the links below to learn more about each organization and to apply! The deadline to apply has been extended to Sunday October 17, 2021 at 11:59pm ET for the following organizations:
- Govern for America
- Green Corps

This program is a bold effort to connect leading public service organizations with students to conduct one-on-one interviews with seniors and speak about post-graduate employment and fellowships. Students may submit applications to multiple organizations and must submit a unique resume and cover letter for each position.
For seniors interested in the public sector, this is an early opportunity to build relationships and identify exciting opportunities with potential employers. If selected to participate, students will need to be available between 10:00am and 4:00pm on October 29th for interviews. Students who will graduate in December 2021 are welcome to apply this year, but students graduating in December 2022 should plan to apply for next year's event. Our deadline has been extended for certain opportunities--applications to participate must be submitted via Crimson Careers by 11:59pm on October 17th.
Pro-tip: if an organization hasn't listed a specific position/fellowship in their profile, focus your resume and cover letter on how your experiences and interests are a good fit for the organization’s mission.
